Today’s message is for those of you who are feeling low, deflated, like failures, or feeling like all you have is all that you will ever have. Today’s message is from Joel and Victoria Osteen. Enjoy! My Question of the Day is at the end of today’s post.
According to His Riches
“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”
(Philippians 4:19, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
The Scripture says God will supply our needs “according to His riches.” So often we look at our situations and think, “I’ll never get ahead. I’m so far in debt, I’ll never get out.” No, His blessing is not according to what you have; it’s according to what He has. The good news is that God owns it all. One touch of God’s favor can blast you out of barely enough and put you into more than enough. God has ways to increase you beyond your normal income, beyond your salary, beyond what’s predictable.
Now quit telling yourself, “This is all I’ll ever have. I’ll never make it.” Let go of the past and choose to have an abundance mentality. Declare, “This is not where I’m staying. I’m blessed. I’m prosperous. I’m headed to overflow; I’m headed to the land of More Than Enough according to His riches in glory!”
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, You are so good! Thank You for Your unconditional love and grace toward me. Thank You for being faithful even when I fall short. Today I choose to rise up and believe that You are blessing me according to Your riches in glory in Jesus’ name! Amen.
— Joel & Victoria Osteen
